America's War on Personal Freedoms Bites Them in the Ass

So America's big war on drugs is now starting to bite us in the ass...see the video below. I have always thought allowing people to drink or smoke cigarettes but not let people smoke pot was pretty hypocritical. I also always thought I had a right to privacy and that what goes on in my home is no ones business if I am hurting no one else.

The "War on Drugs" is just a fancy name for the war on personal freedoms.

Do you really think after 20 years of failed policies to stop drugs they will ever stop the flow of drugs? I don't. It is a billion dollar business. You can't stop that with the demand from America for the drugs. America holds the strongest stance against drugs in the world but we consume the most drugs than any other country in the world. This is why this "war" is futile.

So our guns go their way, their drugs come our way....could easily stop it by just legalizing the drugs and taking hold of what they are killing each other over. That be too easy for our government though. They rather the killings continue another two years.

Oh yea, btw, the border war has been going on for 2 years and is just now coming to surface......makes ya wonder, huh?

Sen Ron Paul says the same thing. Drug use is a personal choice and social problem and should be left to private individuals to deal with. I quite agree. We are wasting billions and I also agree it's just an excuse to erode privacy and personal freedoms. And frankly, governments have always used drugs to keep their populace tame, so if there are lots of drugs around it's likely with their willing consent that that is so.
